Good Noodletimes. Great Noodleleggers!

Snowshoe adventures are available in three levels:
• 1 hour Basic Introductions/Trials
• 1 hour Beginner adventures
• 2 hour Intermediate adventures
and also: Moonlit adventures

**Because of the popularity, these snowshoe dates are not on drop in basis. If you wish to have a drop in or to change a certain date, please contact Noodlelegs. Registering for a regular group holds your spot as spaces will be limited fro 2024/25 season.

Can I join late? Maybe! Just contact Noodlelegs and we will help get you into a group.

Snowshoe Levels and Dates:

1. Introduction/Trial: you’ve always wanted to try snowshoeing, but don’t know where to begin, or perhaps you
are unsure if that hip/knee of yours will hold up in a 2 hour adventure; you’d like a 1 hour introduction to see if this
is for you! Everything you need is provided: chairs, snowshoes and poles (if needed), assistance with gearing up,
technique and trail guidance from a personal trainer/older adult/group fitness instructor, and we go at a very slow
pace on flatter routes; all explained in a fun and friendly, no-stress/non-competitive manner; includes warm up and
cool down movements; total time is 1 hour, but the actual snowshoeing only ends up being about 30 min, with lots of
breaks.

2. Beginner Adventures: you’re not really new to snowshoeing, but some days are harder than others for your body;
you need the snowshoe adventure to be a bit more gentle; you do some walking on your own, but hills can be/are a
challenge; you’d like a guided group outing, but at a very slow pace, on flatter routes, filled with smiles and
laughter!

3. Intermediate Adventures: you’re not new to snowshoeing/or you perhaps ski and walk on your own, or you live
a busy lifestyle and are used to moving a lot in your day; this class is not for people with any heart/ health
issues/post-surgery recovery; we do hills, but we stop; these are seen as “regular classes” and run every second
week. Please don’t plan to have any appointments right after our outing as sometimes we do take longer than planned.

 

NEW THIS YEAR: If it’s colder than -15°C or the snow conditions are terrible/unsafe for snowshoeing, we will stay in town and meet for a Nordic pole walking adventure! You will be notified the morning OF your adventure if it’s a no-go for snowshoeing, and then you will immediately receive directions/instructions via email to our Nordic pole walking destination for that day.

We will snowshoe in all types of weather, unless it is too cold or unsafe.

Please note the new cancellation policy for this year:

  • No refunds for missed classes, but we can try to fit you into another adventure. There are no guarantees that there will be room in another adventure.

NOODLELEGS PRESENTS OUR SNOWSHOE INTRODUCTION/TRIAL

Equivalent to a complete beginner Snowshoe Adventure – specifically tailored to older adults.

IS THIS YOU:

  • you’d LOVE to try the peaceful snowshoeing experience, but don’t know where to begin and you certainly don’t want to go alone
  • you’d prefer a safe time with complete instruction and guidance
  • you aren’t sure how your body will feel after snowshoeing (for whatever reason), and this is a gentle start
  • perhaps you can only walk on flats for 20-30 min or less, but you really really want to try snowshoeing
  • you’re tired of the winter blues and would like to get into a new activity and need a bit of assistance
  • you’d like to try out your gear (or rentals) in an introductions so you know how it works and how it should feel

Let Noodlelegs help you get started, and we will have fun doing so!! A Noodlelegs snowshoe introduction can perhaps be a good thing to try before enrolling in the regular Noodlelegs snowshoe adventures.

Smaller group sizes mean you get individual attention, and safety is key.

If this piques your interest even a tiny bit, please take advantage of your adventurous curiosity!  Contact us and we will answer any questions you have! Why NOT?? You will talk to the head instructor and discuss things.

Introduction/Trial Snowshoe Adventure: total time is 1 hour, but the actual snowshoeing only ends up being about 30min, with lots of breaks.
